Award-winning actor and producer Gillian Anderson has signed a first-look deal with Netflix via her production company Fiddlehead Productions.

The deal is for television producing with an initial term of two years.

Anderson has had a fruitful partnership in recent years with the streamer, winning Emmy, SAG, Critics Choice and Golden Globe awards for her turn in Netflix series “The Crown.” Anderson, who played Margaret Thatcher in season 4, was utterly transformed for the part of the former British Prime Minister.

She also stars as sex therapist Dr Jean Milburn in Netflix’s comedy drama “Sex Education,” which is set to return for a fourth season.

In addition, Anderson is known for hit series including “The X Files,” alongside David Duchovny, and “The Fall,” in which she stars opposite Jamie Dornan. She will next be seen playing Eleanor Roosevelt in Showtime’s “The First Lady,” which is set to launch in the U.S. in April.

“Netflix have been an inspiring and supportive home for much of my recent acting work so I am excited to partner with them for the television projects I am currently developing,” Anderson said. “We have a shared passion for progressive, compelling and engaging stories and I’m thrilled to announce our collaboration.”

Anne Mensah, VP of U.K. series at Netflix, added: “We feel very privileged to be working closely with Gillian on new projects. Her success at Netflix – from ‘Sex Education’ to her singular portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Crown’ – is second to none and we look forward to launching shows with her as an actress and executive producer.”

“The Pale Blue Eye,” Netflix’s mystery thriller that follows a young Edgar Allan Poe, has added an impressive supporting cast that includes Gillian Anderson, Lucy Boynton, Robert Duvall and more.

Christian Bale and Harry Melling star in the fictional Gothic thriller, which is being directed by Scott Cooper. Bale plays a detective in 1830 tasked with investigating a series of murders at the United States Military Academy in West Point, and who takes a young cadet named Edgar Allan Poe (Melling) under his wing to help him solve the case.

Rounding out the supporting cast are Anderson, Boynton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones, Harry Lawtey, Simon McBurney, Timothy Spall, Hadley Robinson, Joey Brooks, Brennan Cook, Gideon Glick, Fred Hechinger, Matt Helm, Steven Maier, Charlie Tahan and Duvall.

Cooper has wanted to direct “The Pale Blue Eye” for more than a decade, and he also wrote the screenplay based on Louis Bayard’s 2003 book of the same name. Cooper will also produce with Tyler Thompson for Cross Creek Pictures, John Lesher for Grisbi Productions and Bale. Dylan Weathered is executive producing for Grisbi Productions, as is Tracey Landon.

Bale and Cooper previously worked together on “Hostiles” and “Out of the Furnace.”

Anderson most recently starred on “The Crown” and in “The First Lady,” as well as guested on the new season of Hulu’s “The Great.” Boynton is known for roles in “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Murder on the Orient Express” and most recently appeared in “Locked Down.” Duvall most recently starred in this year’s “12 Mighty Orphans.”

In the past two years, Gillian Anderson has played two of the most influential female figures who ever lived. First, there was her performance as Margaret Thatcher on Netflix’s The Crown, which won her an Emmy; next, she’ll star as Eleanor Roosevelt in Showtime’s limited series The First Lady. Sandwiched between those parts is another historical character: the scene-stealing detour Anderson takes on season two of Hulu’s The Great,  playing the “shockingly manipulative and self-serving” Joanna.

Joanna is mother to Elle Fanning’s Catherine the Great, a woman who brands herself the “maestro of marriage” for orchestrating her daughters’ high-profile unions. But Catherine’s recent coup has complicated her next advantageous match—another daughter’s betrothal to France’s Louis XIV. As it turns out, overthrowing one’s husband (Nicholas Hoult’s Peter) doesn’t do wonders for the family name.

Her arrival “brings out this teenage side of Catherine that we haven’t seen where she’s just striving so hard to be perfect for her mom,” Fanning tells Vanity Fair. “She can’t ever quite impress her the way that she wants to. Even though she’s like, ‘I’ve taken over this whole country and look what I’ve done,’ it’s still not enough.”

That very coldness is what attracted Anderson to the role. “I found her incredibly enigmatic and disturbing, and I didn’t feel like I’d really played someone quite like her before, which is always a plus in my book,” Anderson says. “I’ve played very serious characters for most of my career, so anytime there’s an opportunity to play and have fun and push boundaries and exploit, I like to jump right in there.”

It was clear from the start that Anderson was ready to shed Margaret Thatcher’s helmet-like hair and cobalt blue power suits. “It was funny, because everyone on set was a bit like, ‘Oh, my gosh, like Gillian Anderson’s here,’” Fanning says. “I would realize when Gillian was on set, everyone was kind of on their best behavior and we’re all being more proper. But that quickly dissolved because Gillian was just as silly and crazy with us.”

There’s a dearth of information about the real Joanna Elisabeth of Holstein-Gottorp, but Anderson says one fact encapsulates the character’s warped priorities.  When Joanna finally went to Russia to visit Catherine, she had “used up her own daughter’s clothing allowance, or dowry” in order to “outfit herself in the latest clothes.” Says Anderson, “The real-life Joanna did not have her daughter’s best interest at heart.”

Gillian Anderson is one of the world’s biggest stars.

She came to huge fame as Dana Scully in X-Files back in the 90s and since the she has graced many TV shows and movies.

She even played Margaret Thatcher in The Crown and now she plays another villain in the new Aardman movie, Robin Robin.

Being a superfan of Aardman Animations it was easy for her to snap up the role of ‘Cat’ but had no idea she would have to sing!

(Don’t worry she pulls it off brilliantly in character!)

Alison Curtis on Weekend Breakfast spoke to Gillian about the new movie, which is fabulous!
